I know the images of the prizes were not the best, but I just wanted to get the event up and going as promised on Saturday! Sunday afternoon was nice & overcast here, so I took more images of the loot for your enjoyment. Here are the detail shots for each prize:
This little notebook is so cute! I love the pink shades on the shells. The Valdani pearl cotton reminds me of an exotic sea.
I tried to get a good shot of the button, but it was being difficult! It is a lovely light turquoisy (I know that's not a word, but...) color with pink/lavender flashes. The Tokyo Milk soap smells wonderful!
Lovely vintage buttons. I adore the pink shells!
"Calm" Lollia luxury handcreme- what could be more perfect for this package?!?
I love to work with purples, pinks & greens. These colors are what I gravitate toward in my Spring flowerbeds. The Valdani pearl cotton picks up the shades nicely.
A little Tokyo Milk soap & Czech art glass button. This is glass, but it almost looks like it is inlaid with shell.
A variety of vintage pink buttons.
"Imagine" Lollia luxury handcreme- I hope it sparks your imagination!
Paris is so romantic. So is the Valdani pearl cotton. "Robin's Nest" is a color I've used for years. I never tire of it's beauty.
This Czech art glass button is very flashy! The little Tokyo Milk soap is enchanting.
Thread worthy of any Paris catwalk!
Red, light golden yellow & peachy vintage buttons.
"Classic Petal" Lollia luxury handcreme- ooh-la-la!
I hope you now have a better view of the prizes up for grabs! I tried to put each prize package together so that there would be something for everyone in this event.
Everyone can use a little notebook to tuck in their tatting bag or purse. I've included several of my favorite threads for you to try, along with Czech art glass buttons and vintage buttons. The little Tokyo Milk soaps are small and just right for traveling. But the extra special goody is the Lollia luxury handcreme. This is my favorite handcreme! I use it several times daily. It absorbs quickly and does not leave a residue on my hands. In my opinion, it is the perfect loition for tatters!
To enter the event, please leave a comment on Saturday's blogpost saying which prize you prefer and why. I am keeping a running list of who prefers each prize. The winner of each prize package will be selected via random number generator on Wednesday, August 29th, 2012, and subsequently announced on the blog that morning.
Well, I'm off to the Atelier. I didn't get much accomplished in the way of tatting this weekend, but hope to have something pretty to share with you tomorrow. Have a wonderful day & until then~
